Slip & Fall Accidents

Slip and Fall Injury cases in Tennessee

When most people think of a slip and fall accident, they think of a falling accident in a store or business. However, accidents also happen in homes. All property owners are responsible for maintaining their premises in a reasonably safe condition for guests. If you fall and injure yourself at a store, business, or someone else’s property, you should contact a slip and fall accident lawyer as soon as possible to protect your rights for compensation. Slip and fall injuries can affect your life for months or even years into the future. However, many property owners and insurance companies do not take these cases seriously until you hire a slip-and-fall accident attorney.

What’s my slip and fall case worth?

The value of your slip and fall case will be determined by damages and liability. The first factor our lawyers will examine is damages. If you are only slightly injured, you may not have a case that is worth you or a law firm’s pursuit.

However, if you suffered a broken bone, a torn ligament, a cut that leaves a scar, a back injury, disfigurement, a closed head injury, or another serious personal injury, you should contact a slip and all accident lawyer or slip and fall accident attorney as soon as possible.

Next, we look at liability. In homes and apartments, injuries may be caused by the poor construction of decks, stairs, and sidewalks. In stores and other businesses, injuries may be caused by obstructions, falling objects, spills, or other negligence.

In a premises liability case, you are in a better position to seek compensation if you had a reason for being on the property, such as shopping or being a guest. We can also handle cases involving common carriers such as elevators, escalators, and public transportation.

You should be compensated if you have lost quality of life because of a slip and fall injury or trip and fall accident. Slip and fall injuries are typically covered by homeowner’s insurance or by general business liability insurance. At the Law Offices of James A.H.
